10 Daesh suspects arrested in central Turkey

ESKISEHIR: Ten Iraqi nationals who are suspected of being linked to the Daesh terrorist group were arrested in Turkey's central province of Eskisehir on Wednesday, according to security officials.

They were rounded up in simultaneous anti-terror operations launched across the city, a security source said on condition of anonymity.

More than 300 people have so far lost their lives in Daesh-claimed attacks in Turkey, where the terror organization has targeted civilians in suicide bomb, rocket and gun attacks.

Turkish security forces have been involved in a long-running campaign to thwart Daesh attacks.
